Captain Cook Cruises is offering 25% off Murray River cruises until 26 February, 2016, with their Summer Sun Sale. Passengers can discover the summer serenity of the Murray River and the taste sensations of the Murray’s food and wine trail from as little $695 per person.
Murray Princess & Cliffs
Its full steam ahead down the mighty Murray River as guests discover Australian history and culture, incredible terrain and wildlife on the newly refurbished PS Murray Princess, a modern replica of the paddle wheelers that cruised the Murray in the 1800’s.
The Murray Princess has two spacious, yet cosy paddlewheel lounges featuring polished wood and gold trimmings, an elegant spiral staircase and spectacular two-story glass windows with views of the working paddle wheel.
Sit back in the air-conditioned paddlewheel lounges and enjoy the amazing views as the Murray Princess cruises past towering limestone cliffs, through picturesque gorges and along riverbanks lined with mallee scrub and red gum forests.
Summer birdlife on the Murray River includes an abundance of Australian favourites including Swans, Swamp Hens and Wood Ducks and their young. Plant life is also thriving with Lignum bushes flowering and rushes and reeds getting a vibrant green colour to them. Led by on-shore guides passengers can enjoy nature walks, eco-tours and learn about the thriving ecology of the river.
Each day features exciting day trips to historic ports, sacred Aboriginal sites, a sheep station and woolshed and a native wildlife shelter.
Follow the food and wine trial for tastings at a number of vineyards and cellar doors, and one evening enjoy an Aussie-style campfire barbecue on the riverbank.
